Electrical fault causes Air NZ Boeing 737 emergency landing
12 September 2006

An electrical fault in the cockpit forced the crew of Air New Zealand flight NZ503 (AKL-CHC) to return to Auckland for an emergency landing. Passengers of the Boeing 737-300 (ZK-NGJ) were evacuated using the escape slides after smoke became apparent in the cabin and cockpit. There were no injuries and no damage to the aircraft resulting from the
landing. (TAIC)
